Changes in Battery and Lightbulb Recycling
The City has unveiled a new Battery Drop Box, located in the parking lot at City Hall. You may now drive up and discard old batteries, which will then be recycled. Lightbulbs will now need to be taken to the Monroe County Recycling Center, located at 901 Illinois Ave. (behind the Annex building) for recycling. These items will no longer be accepted in the lobby at City Hall. Thank you for “Being Green” and doing your part to protect the environment!
